[webkit-dev] Need help building on Windows

I am trying to build the QT port on windows, I may be using the wrong
directions because I did not know there were two flavors on windows.  I am
currently using the build instructions that are found in
.\webkit\WebKitSite\building\build.html that come down with the code from
SVN.  I assume now that this is the wrong directions for building the QT
port.  Any help on building the QT port would be appreciated.

Hi Jarrod-

   Are you building the Qt port of WebKit on Windows? I ask because there
are currently (at least) 2 flavors of WebKit that can be built on Windows,
the Qt one and the one that Safari uses. Which are you trying to build? What
build instructions are you following?


   My guess is that you're building the Qt port, given that you have MinGW
and ActiveState Perl installed (the flavor of WebKit that Safari uses
requires Cygwin and Cygwin's perl).
